Cheltenham 2020 – Day Three Diary

I am tracking my results from this year’s Cheltenham festival here on the blog and the first two days went very well, with a profit made on both days.

Onto day three then and there were some cracking races on the card today.

Just a reminder that I am using a twofold strategy this week, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and

2. Use two of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing and the Bet Alchemist – to find the best bets for Cheltenham. Both have excellent records at the festival so I am following their tips for the week.

By combining the above two together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy get on today? Let’s have a look below.


Day Three Results

After a good start on the first two days with a profit of £123, I was hoping to continue the progress today.

So here are my results from Thursday at Cheltenham – and what a day it was! My stakes were £20 per point once again.


1.30 – Marsh Novices Chase

A losing start to the day with Bet Alchemist’s tip Itchy Feet finishing unplaced but I got half the stake back from Skybet. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£10


2.10 – Pertemps Network Final

No bets in this race from either tipster – but things were about to liven up…

Profit/Loss from Race: £0


2.50 – Ryanair Chase

Quentin’s only runner of the day bolted up to deliver our first winner of Thursday as Min won by just a neck at 6/1 advised ante-post (5/2 on the day). The Bet Alchemist’s tip in this race did not place.  

Profit/Loss from Race: +£100


3.30 – Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and it was on Summerville Boy from the Bet Alchemist, which sadly finished 5th so a loss here.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20


4.10 – Stable Plate Handicap

No bets from Quentin on this one but two from the Bet Alchemist, with one placing at 12/1 in the form of Ben Dundee, whilst the other selection Simply the Betts romped home to land a nice winner at 7/1. 

Profit/Loss from Race: +£180


4.50 – Mares Novices Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist then followed it up with another winner in the next race with Concertista, which I backed at 5/1 (advised price 11/2).

Profit/Loss from Race: +£120


5.30 – Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase

The Bet Alchemist was unlucky not to follow it up with yet another winner in the last, with 12/1 ante-post pick Kilfilum Cross finishing second for each-way returns. His other pick finished well down the field. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£26



So a cracking day in the end, with the luck finally going our way and three winners on the day. An excellent profit of £344 on the day, taking my total profit for the week to £467.

The festival wraps up tomorrow with the feature race being the Gold Cup, so let’s hope for more of the same and to finish off a great week in style.

Just a note to say I am attending a special Cheltenham day out tomorrow (not at the course itself but a venue with big screens, food and drink etc which should be a lot of fun) so I probably won’t be able to post tomorrow’s results until later in the weekend. 

Enjoy the last day of the festival though wherever you are and I hope you’ve had a good week too.
